Probate Does Not Have To Be Problematic
Family dynamics are incredibly complicated. When a deceased loved one’s estate is going through probate, these dynamics can often contribute to prolonged conflicts that drain the assets of the estate. Preventing and mitigating probate disputes is possible, but they require the strategic counsel of an attorney.
At Patrick Collins, LLC, our attorney, Patrick Collins, helps clients throughout the Eastern Shore region of Alabama who wish to manage probate conflicts proactively. We bring a combination of skill and compassion to these cases, as we understand that they often involve emotional topics.
How We Help You Avoid Disputes
In our extensive estate administration and probate practice, we have mastered the use of several tools to reduce, prevent and neutralize problems. Some of these include:
- Adding a joint owner to a bank account
- Lifetime gifting
- Placing assets into trusts
Our experience has also given us invaluable insight into even simpler tools that we can use to avert disputes. We bring our legal knowledge to other nonlegal strategies such as:
- Creating an estate plan as early as possible
- Leaving clear, airtight directions in your will
- Helping you communicate with your family about your plans
- Consulting with you on a regular basis to update your estate documents
We combine our acumen in creating legal documents with the interpersonal skills that we have gained from working with hundreds of families. This lays a foundation of legally sound documents that a court will honor and circumvents potential family arguments.
